Inside View | Bird's eye View | Another Kiva repayment

Inside View - In the 12th article in our “Inside View” series Lesley-Ann Brown shares what her deaf son taught her. 


It was a shock because he had passed all his hearing tests and was even one of the first babies in my mothering group to say “bye bye” on cue. I thought he was not only developing by the book, but excelling too.

In retrospect, there were signs that something was amiss. When he played alone he was so deeply concentrated that he was hard to reach (“he’s just ignoring you”, people told me), he had a deep physical attachment to me (he would never just run off on his own), he hit other kids in daycare and kindergarten (anything to get a reaction he could understand) and he had started to mouth the words I was saying (apparently he was teaching himself how to lip read). Read Lesley-Ann's story. If you want to share your email contact@blackwomenineurope.com.

An urbanist's guide to Stockholm: ‘Find your own secret space and own it'

Lola Akinmade

My name is Lola Akinmade Åkerström. I was born in Nigeria, studied and worked in the United States, and moved to Stockholm for love many moons ago after giving up my life as a system architect working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). That was in 2009. Coming from two boisterous cultures – Nigerian and American – Sweden as a whole was an initial shock to the system. Life slowed down tremendously and the words “work-life balance” slowly crept into my psyche. Read more about Lola's Stockholm.
